Fire Opals is among the top performing land-based IGT slots, and online slots players are excited to see it debut online. The online version features the MultiWay Xtra feature with 720 ways to win across 5 reels with a hexagonal layout. The MultiWay Xtra feature ensures winning combinations pay both ways (from right to left and left to right). Enjoy stacked wilds, free spins, a 100,000-coin jackpot and a nice betting range for high rollers.
Symbols on the reels relate to the jeweled theme and include Red Opals, Blue Opals, Scatter Opals, Fire Opals Logo, a Woman, Bird of Paradise, Orchid, and Volcano. There are also playing card values such as K, Q, and J, which are just like the playing cards used for most table games.
Stacked wilds are prevalent in the Fire Opals slot game, and these stacked wilds that can appear stacked on reels 2, 3, and 4 and substitute for all other symbols on the reels apart from the scatter to complete winning combinations.
The Scatter symbol is indicated by the word “scatter” and can result in some amazing scatter pays such as 3X your total bet for 3 scatters, 20X your total bet for 4 scatters, or 100X your total bet for 5 scatters.
The Fire Opals Logo will reward you with 2,000X your line bet, which translates to 100,000 coins if you were to play at the optimal bet value of 50.
This game features an interesting Free Spins round with a good twist. First, you need 5 Red Opals to trigger the Free Spins session where you will be awarded with 10 initial free spins. You will need an additional5 Blue Opals to win another 10 free spins, and you can win up to 260 free spins.
This game is probably best for people with a bigger betting budget due to its high betting values. For instance, the lowest bet you can wager is 50 coins, and even this is quite high, considering some slots (e.g. Super Hoot Loot) allow you to bet a mere 1 coin per spin. Fire Opals is a high volatility slot game where wins are not as frequent but are extremely rewarding when they do hit.
You will need to have a bankroll to take you though the dry spells when playing Fire Opals, but you will hit the big ones if you are lucky and patient enough. The stacked wilds particularly make play worthwhile. Also, try some other IGT favorites like Cleopatra and Lobstermania.
